(In your best “movie trailer guy” voice): Scott Wagar has had enough … and this time, it’s personal!
He told authorities that he was tired of having his residence toilet papered and egged each year during homecoming week, and this year he’d made up his mind to defend his home. So he did what any rational-thinking guy would do: He borrowed some night vision goggles and waited for the ill-intentioned teens to strike. When they did, he was ready. He shouted obscenities, aimed his “Super Soaker” at the group of approximately 15-20 teens, and opened fire. He also allegedly had a brief scuffle with one of the teens, who Wagar said grabbed him from behind.
It’s the contents of the Super Soaker that is a bit odd – a mixture of two-thirds water and one-third fox urine. Why fox urine, you ask? “It stinks, but it doesn’t hurt anything,” said Wagar.
Once authorities found out what happened, they began to investigate. One question they asked was who he got the night vision goggles from. Turns out they were borrowed from his son, who used to be a Marine.
So what is the end result of this bizarre incident? Wagar is charged with misdemeanor assault and other charges (he’s pleaded not guilty this week), while his son is charged with a felony, receiving stolen property. For his part, Wagar describes how his son got the goggles as “a gray area.”
On one hand I can understand Mr. Wagar’s anger. Cleaning up a mess like that isn’t fun. Quite frankly, if it happened to me for eight straight years I’d be pretty ticked off, too. Not sure I’d attempt retaliation in the same manner, but all kidding aside, his frustration level must have risen ever year. In a way, he’s “punking” the teens in much the same way they were going to “punk” him.
Unfortunately, the fox urine was a little over the top, and as a result, he’s facing charges.
